Two young people have been arrested and charged with robbing two victims in the Massapequa Preserve.
According to police, the 16-year-old and a 19-year-old were walking through the preserve, when they were approached by Aidan Boyle, 17, and Boden Woelk. Boyle allegedly displayed a three-inch gravity knife and demanded property from the 16-year-old victim, who handed over a knap sack containing keys and a credit card. Police also allege that Woelk threatened the 19-year-old victim with physical force, who then handed over $10, as he feared for his safety. Both of the accused fled the scene, police said, and were arrested at Burger King in Seaford.
Boyle is charged with two counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of second-degree robbery, fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon and fourth degree criminal possession of stolen property. Woelk is charged with two counts of first-degree robbery and two counts of second-degree robbery.
